Wichita, Kan. -- An Augusta couple have been indicted on federal charges of stealing more than $1.5 million from Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America.
The U.S. Attorney's Office says 43-year-old Brent A. Shryock and his wife 50-year-old Lori A. Shryock, are accused of stealing more than $1.5 million from the Wichita-based company which operates assisted living facilities across Kansas and Missouri. Brent Shryock served as information systems director for the company, and was responsible for all computers, telephones, video information and electronic equipment, including the purchase of new or replacement equipment.
Shryock and his wife re alleged to have created four fictitious companies: LGR Technology, Innovative Software Solutions, DT Solutions and Microtech Solutions. The indictment alleges the initials in LGR Technology stood for “Let’s Get Rich.” The Shryocks used the fictitious companies to submit fraudulent invoices to the company.
The couple has been charged with four counts of mail fraud. If convicted, they face up to 20 years in prison and fine of up to $250,000 for each count.
